A 17-year-old parolee stabbed a man four times in a carjacking attempt outside a Fountain Valley supermarket, leaving the victim critically injured, police said Sunday.

The youth ran into the night from the bloody scene at the Stater Brothers supermarket, 11085 Warner Ave., at 8:55 p.m. Saturday, but was arrested one block away.

Officers rushing to the stabbing found the victim suffering from about four stab wounds in the upper torso, according to a department statement.

The victim had been walking to his car in the parking after buying some groceries when he was reportedly confronted by the boy, who demanded his car keys, officers related.

Police fanned out and found the suspect one block away. He is a 17-year- old boy from Fountain Valley who matched the suspect's description.

Taken back to the supermarket, he was positively identified by multiple witnesses, police said.

The suspect was currently on probation for undisclosed crimes. He was arrested for attempted carjacking and attempted murder, and booked into the Orange County Juvenile Hall, police said.

And they just keep putting the trash back out on the street. And people wonder why I pack a S&W 9 MM. Wake up call. You are on your own. The Cops come after the fact... REMEMBER..... If you use your gun to shoot someone. After it is done. Call the cops. Put the gun away. When they come. DO NOT MOVE. HAVE YOUR HANDS OUT IN FRONT OF YOU. Give them your name. AND SAY. I WAS IN FEAR FROM MY LIFE. I WANT A LAWYER. SAY NO MORE UNTIL YOU HAVE ONE WITH YOU. BE SMART. NOT SORRY! Just saying..
